DASHA RILEY - Artist in Focus
Dasha’s love for Italian Renaissance and Dutch Golden Age painting inspires her choice of composition, colours and post production treatment, blurring the boundaries between photography and painting.
Her images reflect internal worlds rooted in the magic of childhood, and personal dreams and visions, with narratives touching on themes of European heritage, solitude, the otherworldly, and awareness of our connection to spirit.
